My family had a fantastic day fishing for Stripers off Monomoy Island, Cape Cod with Eric Stapelfeld of Hairball Charters. We caught more Stripers than we could count, and had a great experience (and truly an effortless one on our part - they did all the work!) on the water thanks to Eric and his son. Hairball Charters offers a family-friendly environment with safety being top of mind. Eric had multiple life preservers for kids of all sizes, and he made sure to keep an extra watchful eye on the kids the entire time. Going out on a charter with Eric, a charter captain with decades of experience in these waters, makes all the difference in the world. He knows where the fish are and how to catch them, and everyone has a great time. On top of all that, we found the rates to be quite affordable. I highly recommend giving Eric a call if you're looking to charter a fishing boat on Cape Cod.

Fishing with Capt Eric is what you dream of when you think of big stripers and Cape Cod. In less than 5 hours of fishing, Hairball Charters put on nonstop action, landing 70 linesiders in total! And the action wasn’t limited to schoolies. By the end of the trip, we had a dozen bruisers over 38”, the largest being a monster at 46” and well over 40 pounds! Captain Eric’s home-made jigs and unique technique, coupled with his lifelong experience of the tides and area, put us on the fish all day long for the best day of fishing ever. Highly recommend Hairball Charters! Tight lines!

The top water bite was on fire today! I lost count but we caught and released at least 25 Stripers today up to 45" in a few hours, with multiple quad's hooked up. I have been going on Captain Eric's Hairball Charters for 15 years now and have brought everyone from young kids to elderly folks with all different levels of experience and Eric has always put us on fish. I have been with about a dozen other charters in my lifetime before Eric and can truly say that no one compares.

Hairball Charters out of Falmouth, Massachusetts, is hands down the best fishing charter in Cape Cod. Captain Eric is incredibly knowledgeable and professional. He consistently knows where the fish are, ensuring we always have a successful and enjoyable trip. His expertise and dedication set him far above other captains in the area. Every time we go fishing with Hairball Charters, we catch tons of fish and have an excellent time on the boat. The experience is unmatched, and I will never book any other charter in Cape Cod. Highly recommend Hairball Charters for an unforgettable fishing adventure. Book Captain Eric today!

Captain Eric was simply an amazing captain! We did an afternoon departure out of Falmouth and Eric took us all the way to Martha’s Vineyard. Eric has been fishing for 30 Plus years and knows the waters like the back of his hand. Eric and his son Eric, took care of setting us up with the lines in the water and coached us on how to jig. We caught several fish on this charter! Captain Eric’s experience is phenomenal and he made sure that we got to catch fish. If you’re coming to Cape Cod, book a trip with Hairball Charters… you will be VERY thankful that you did!!!

Great trip with Captain Eric and his son! Great clean boat, caught striped bass and bluefish, they filleted the stripers and we took them home. He knows exactly where to go. Was a great time!

This was our fourth trip out with Captain Eric, and as always was a successful and fun trip! He works hard to find the fish, and even harder to help us hook them! We caught at least 20 fish between the 4 of us- Stripers and Black Bass. For a real genuine fishing trip, he and his son Eric are your guys!

Booked in a session for 4 hours $400 in the evening. Told us we were booked in. 4 hours became 3 hours, which became 2 hours. He then pushed us back by 2 hours and offered 2 hours for $400. Not respectful of our time or our money whatsoever. Do not reccomend.

What a great experience with captain Eric! Me, my wife, and three boys had an absolute blast crushing stiped bass all morning. Captain eric put us on the fish first thing in the morning and we were on them constant into the afternoon. The great memories will be with us forever. We will certainly be booking with hairball charters on our next trip to cape cod.

We spent a week in Mashpee, MA and wanted to go fishing. We were booked, but our captain had some boat issues and called another captain to see if he could take us out. He did and we had a great time. He took us to a couple different spots until he found the perfect spot. Great couple and very personable. They cleaned and cut our cat h so we could have it for dinner that night. I would totally use him again for any fishing charter. Great guy!!!
